The Scuttling of the U.S.S. Small Business Act: Rothe Development Corp vs. DoD/USAF. (Part Seven of Nine)

Posted By Guy Timberlake, The American Small Business Coalition, LLC, Sunday, October 09, 2011

Wait for it...

Did you hear that? That was the sound of seawater flooding another compartment of the great vessel responsible for job creation, ongoing innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit long since forgotten by many companies not on this ship's passenger list.

The cause is not an accident. Critical hatchway's are being opened by opponents and opportunists who through political and corporate posturing (and nefarious activities), are working hard to sink the collection of government programs providing assistance to legions of small and microbusinesses often referred to as the 'backbone' of the U.S. economy by pundits and practitioners.

Beyond the typical opposition to anything creating benefit for the underdog, there is an ever-increasing chorus of activity calling for the demise of set-aside programs related to government contracting. This includes a combination of:

  • detractors who believe all contractors are unnecessary;
  • those who prefer the perceived safety and security of working with an organization with the cash reserves to buy small countries, and;
  • inaction of those elected to positions to effect meaningful change.

All of this contributes to the methodical chipping away of the foundation of these programs.

Not sure what I'm talking about?

Rothe Development Corporation vs DoD/USAF. Sorry, but I just don't see how this does not set the foundation for a possible Constitutional challenge to the entire Small Business Act. Small businesses check your six. Click here for info on the proposed FAR rule.

Peace!
